How To Make An Emergency Lamp From Common Household Items
This is valuable knowledge, if a storm hits or SHTF and you have no way of lighting your surroundings morale will suffer and make things very difficult. Light gives hope and also a little warmth. It keeps kids calm and gives you a sense of normalism.
Knowing how to make simple lights from household items is a must in my book. If you are not a committed prepper I think this is a great project for you to at least know for an emergency.
You will need light to function in the dark, if you have kids this will be a scary time for them. Your cell phone and flashlight batteries will only last you so long. In a bad storm you could expect power to be out for at least a few days to a few weeks.
The materials you need for this crude lamp you should have already so why don’t you give it a try now and see how you like it. I think it’s ingenious to know how to make one and it won’t take you but 5 minutes.
